This cozy three-floor apartment is one of four units in the Historic 'Mule Barn', a Crested Butte landmark. Once used to house mules for use in mining operations, the Mule Barn was moved into Crested Butte in 1970, and made into unique and artistic apartments. This apartment is like a treehouse within a barn; it is a work of art, with beautiful woodworking, stonework, and a spiral staircase (hewn from a tree with a chainsaw). The apartment is rustic, simple, and very comfortable, but not a 'luxury' accommodation. This home sleeps six, with three bedrooms, a full bath, and a half bath. The first floor has two bedrooms, one with a full-sized bed and the other with two twin beds, and a shared full bath. The second floor is the main living area, with a living room with a wood stove, kitchen, dining area, high ceilings with sky lights, and a half bath. The third floor is a loft bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Access to this room requires ascending a ladder, and is not suitable for small children. This ladder can take some getting used to, but our mother had no trouble with it into her 80's. There is a yard with a deck and a balcony. Amenities include two mountain bikes, a charcoal grill, washer and dryer, wireless internet, HD TV, Apple TV, stereo system, a Clavinova piano, and lots of hummingbirds in summer. You can easily walk everywhere - to downtown in five minutes, to the grocery store in under 10 minutes, and to the bus stop in two minutes that takes you to the Mt. Crested Butte ski area (free bus every 20 minutes, every day). You can hike, bike, and cross-country ski from your front door. The town of Crested Butte has many excellent restaurants, shops, and boutiques. Just down the street is a park and recreational area, popular among kids and adults, with nice music in the summertime. At nearly 9,000 ft and at the end of the road, the town has a 'top of the World' feeling, surrounded by spectacular mountains covered with snow in winter and wildflowers in summer.
